The Del Mar Fairgrounds is such a good date spot that we sort of wish every city had one. Alas, you San Diegans got lucky, so this is one local date you’ve got to take advantage of.
Whether you’re a big horse fan, or more in it for the experience, Del Mar has a myriad of ways to stay entertained on a date.
The entrance fee is only $10. Once inside the race track, there are a ton of concession stands selling all types of food, draft beers, cocktails, etc. You can even eat at a restaurant within the Fairgrounds, although these require reservations.
And then you can bet on the horses! Of course, it’s always impressive if one or both of you actually knows what you’redoing: but if neither of you have ever been to a horse race before, you can throw caution to the wind and use the time-honored strategy of placing bets based on which horses have the best names.
Get a drink, enjoy the weather, the ocean view, the excitement of the races, and each other’s company!
(Side note: remember when Nick and Jessica went to the Del Mar Fairgrounds for their first anniversary, but Nick got really into the betting and left Jessica alone? Don’t do that.)
